This device for hunting and golf comes with an impressive package. There is a nice case included, which adds protection to your unit and makes it easier to carry it around. It also features a lanyard, which is always an added convenience, as you can hang it around your neck or elsewhere while being out in the field or on the golf course.
This model also comes with a shoulder strap and a CR2 3V battery.
A nice added touch of the package is a small compass. This is something I have never seen with other models like this, so I find it pretty awesome. The design of this one is pretty cool too.
Features of the Wosports Laser Rangefinder for Hunting and Golfing
The measurement range is 5 – 700 yards. It is accurate down to plus or minus one yard and it can measure in yards or meters. This is pretty good for a model in this price range. Apart from that it is really accurate.
This unit is not able to compensate for elevation. Therefore, the measured distance will be slightly off if you are using it off the ground, such as in a tree stand. This could especially be a problem for rifle hunters that hunt at larger distances. However, if you know this when hunting you could still use it. It would just require you to account for the distance that would be off.
The magnification of this hunting model is 6x with an objective lens of 25mm.
The display of this one is very clear and easy to read. It has features such as fog mode, making it usable even in the thickest fog. This is a benefit for all hunters, because realistically, what good is a rangefinder if you can’t read the display in bad weather conditions?
The size dimensions are 4.3 x 3 x 1.7 inches. It weighs just 6.3 ounces. This is a super compact model. It truly makes it easy for both golfers and hunters to carry it around throughout the day.
Another nice feature of this product is it’s automatic power-off feature. This causes it to turn itself off after a period of inactivity. This helps users save battery life and puts off the need to change batteries too often.
The housing on this device is only partially covered. While this gives the product a good design, one might want to be careful when using it in rainy conditions. It can likely handle a light sprinkle but heavy rains should be avoided. However, this product does have a fog mode, so it can be used during the fog as long as it isn’t accompanied by heavy showers.
Operating the Wosports is simple and done with two buttons. One button is used to go through the options menu and the other is used to point the laser. The simplicity of this model makes it easy for even the most novice hunters to use.
Uses of the Wosports Laser Rangefinder for Hunting and Golfing
The Wosports is very durable due to its partial rubber housing. It is also easy to carry it on long field trips due to the compact design. This model is very responsive and quick, making those quick shots easy.
The measurement range of this one is also something hunters will all enjoy. It can read up to 700 yards, which is pretty impressive for it’s price range. This little device can also measure speed up to 300 km / hour. It is accurate up to one yard.
The only downside that hunters will encounter with this product is the fact that it doesn’t account for elevation. This shouldn’t be too big of an issue for bowhunters, but rifle hunters could definitely find fault with this, especially at larger distances. That’s why it isn’t the best option for everyone, so you might want to consider a different model if you really need one that accounts for slopes and angles.
If getting a good reading from an elevation isn’t a concern for you, I definitely recommend the Wosports. It is a versatile little device with good measurement ranges. It blows other models within a similar price range completely out of the water.
Golf players will love the Wosports. It features pin locking technologies which will making attaching to a golf flagpole a breeze. It will not attach to background objects – at least most of the time – such as trees and it can range low reflective objects as well.
For just under 90 dollars you will get one of the best low priced rangefinders on the market. There are other low-cost models out there that are in a similar price range as this one, but only a few of them have truly the same features.
The Wosports Laser Range Finder is good for golf players, bowhunters and hunters. Just remember that it has no elevation compensation integrated.
This product is a great balance of both value and price. For a rather low investment you will get a lot of features that normally are only to be found in higher priced models.
Thanks for reading and shoot straight!
Could you please have someone from Wosports customer service contact me. I have emailed them twice & asked them to contact me on their website about a product I purchased. Very frustrated at this point!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
